MORSe PhD workshop
As part of the MORSE initiative, the Maastricht Observatory on Resilient, Responsible and Sustainable Society, Economy and Enterprise, PhD researchers doing research on a topic that falls within the scope of the initiative presented their work to each other on June 22nd and 23rd. Both the sessions lasted for three hours in which 4 presentations were given. The two sessions first and foremost allowed all PhD candidates to give and receive constructive feedback on each other’s work which can help them for the rest of the research that still needs to be done. The PhD supervisors also played an important role as discussants. Not of their own PhDs but for those working on sometimes rather different topics. The meetings furthermore provided for the perfect opportunity to get to know each other and connect. Many of us have been working from home since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis and therefore have not been able to for example chitchat in the hallway.
